I want to be in all senses of the words, All. Things. Mama.
As far back as I can remember I've wanted to be a mom, not just any mom, but the mom that stays home with her kids full time. The mom who loves even when she is not loved back, who can't breathe without thinking of her kids first. The mom who loves teaching, playing, cooking, baking, laughing, and kissing owies. The mom who is ALL THINGS MAMA. My husband and I scrimp so that dream can be fulfilled. Being a mom is not part time for me. It is something that has captured my heart. All of the going ons of my life start with thoughts of my kids. My kids consume my love and my life and I allow it because, with God's help they are the essence of what makes me a mother. This is me...

Love is in the house...

...and the house is packed! Skyelynn is here and her brand new, loveable, baby presence brought tons of visitors to our door..well, our hospital door and our front door!  I tried to remember to get pictures of all her visitors holding her but a few of you got away from me. I apologize!
Here's a smattering of who came and went and packed our room and house with love!

This is how it should be...lots of family, lots of friends, lots of love!

She surprised us with her gobs of dark hair and low birth weight, at least in comparison to our firstborn monster bald babies.  Skyelynn has changed our family dynamics in a good way.

It's been an adjusting period, these last 3 weeks of newborn love in our home---thus writing and keeping up with our blog has not happened.  But here it is, short and sweet, a tiny update on our lives.

She fits right in.  She scatters joy in our home.  She has brought us new found smiles we didn't know we had until we met her, just like all new babies do.  More to come when life gives us time...
